Saturday was Hunter Creek's cleanup day and about 20 residents came out bright and early to participate. John Spencer, Kyle Bardet, Jim Bayless, Jeff Carlson and Tony Atchinson pulled a large tree out of the creek. Actually, several large trees were down in the area, but thanks to Jim Bayless, who brought along a chain saw, the business of disposing them was easily handled. Bayless is president of the Hunter Creek Homeowners Association.
